I can't stand his voice or even watching him speak with the sound down so I avoid these kinds of things. I'll read the articles instead.

In the plus column for plutocrats, they're going to have to ramp up the prison-industrial complex to hold all these people, I would think.

Hooray! More Trump Judges on the way!

Politico wrote:Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his GOP caucus have long prioritized confirming conservative judges to lifetime appointments. But they’re about to accelerate their ability to unilaterally approve many nominees in dramatic fashion.

The Senate is on track to confirm the 34th Circuit Court judge of Trump’s presidency in the next week and the GOP has three more ready for floor action; that would give Trump roughly 20 percent of the Circuit Court seats in the country after just two years in office. At this rate, McConnell and Trump could leave few, if any, vacancies there for a potential Democratic president in 2021.

Did you see they confirmed one thirty-seven year-old lady to a lifetime appointment?
I'm pretty sure that 37 was just about the life expectancy in 1776. Given, we've made some progress on infant mortality and such.
Maybe it's time we reexamined this whole lifetime appointment thing?

Good for the goose, good for the gander. If a judicial OAC were nominated to the federal bench we’d be ecstatic.

Democrats aren’t appropriately obsessed with stacking the bench when they have the power and to their credit, the Republicans always have their eyes on the prize.

Apparently she's practiced law for nine years, tried all of four cases to verdict or judgment (none as lead counsel) and isn't a member of the bar in any of the states that comprise the Circuit she's been nominated to.

Naive question, I know, but what difference is it who appoints the judge? Are we supposed to believe that people are genetically destined to have left or right political opinions? Is there some blood test? If they're intelligent people and given the facts then they should make good decisions.

And if the left want to nail down legalized abortion they should frame it as a privacy issue: what goes on in a doctor's office is private. No matter if you get treated for a cold or have an abortion it's no one's business. The "choice vs life" framing is crap.

I could write paragraphs and paragraphs in answer to that question, and only I would want to read them. Also, I don’t have time.

So, yes, it is deeply naive.

Abortion, in the context of a discussion about judges, is a legal issue. The Supreme Court, in 1973, decided that the 14th Amendment’s due process clause protects a woman’s decision to have an abortion. But does it? It’s a good question that could lead to pages and pages of writing. It isn’t as simple as how the left talks about the issue. What if the Supreme Court decides Roe was wrongly decided, overrules the decision, and says the constitution does not guarantee a right. Then most of the former confederacy (and a handful of midwestern states) outlaw abortion. There will be nothing for “the left” to frame.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The trial of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has found no evidence of any collusion with Russia, Manafort’ s lawyer Kevin Downing told reporters.

The lawyer spoke after Manafort was sentenced to 47 months in prison in the US state of Virginia over bank and tax fraud related to his work in Ukraine. …

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating claims that Russia meddled in the 2016 US presidential election, as well as allegations of collusion between Trump's campaign team and Moscow.

Russia has repeatedly denied interfering in the election, saying the allegations were made up as an excuse for the defeat of Trump's campaign opponent as well as to deflect public attention from actual instances of electoral fraud and corruption. The claims of collusion have also been repeatedly dismissed by both Moscow and US President Donald Trump, who has called Mueller's probe a "witch hunt."

Odd thing to lead with considering charges of that sort were not in play at this trial.

DJT himself certainly appeared to feel exonerated though.

"The judge said there was no collusion with Russia. This had nothing to do with collusion, there was no collusion. It's a collusion hoax. It's a collusion witch hoax. I don't collude with Russia."
